Paralaurionite

ID: CC16910
The rare lead chloride Paralaurionite, from Torr Works quarry (Merehead Quarry) at Cranmore in Somerset, is a much sought after British species and this is a striking example.  A 1.6 x 0.7 cm area of pale lemon-yellow Paralaurionite with a subtle satin lustre sits in a vein system of white to colourless Calcite within a matrix of sooty-black manganese oxides.  In LWUV the Paralaurionite fluoresces faint dull yellow and in SWUV, a duller yellow and the Calcite dull pale red.  A very good Paralaurionite from Torr Works quarry, Somerset.
